Vegetarian Delights of NYC--Hollow Stem Vegetable at Hunan House

Vegetarian Delights of NYC--Hollow Stem Vegetable at Hunan House

"Sauteed hollow stem vegetable with spicy sauce" at Flushing's Hunan House

The jury is still out as to what species "hollow stem vegetable" represents, but the taste is wonderful nonetheless. The light-green vegetable--probably some sort of pond weed--is indeed hollow like a reed, and has been cut into short lengths and lightly sauteed at Hunan House, which may be the city's only real Hunan restaurant. As you can see, the sauce mentioned in the name is nonexistent, but you won't even care, due to the fermented black beans and pickled bird chiles that supply oodles of salty and tart flavor. Crunch, crunch, yum, yum! 137-40 Northern Boulevard, Flushing, Queens, 718-353-1808
